Caleb Williams will certainly be the Bears' pick at #1 in the upcoming NFL Draft, but after that? It's anyone's guess! A whole lot of teams are in the market for a franchise quarterback, which means trades and controversial selections are almost certainly ahead. For fantasy football: which of the rising rookies could be usable right away? Which guys need to sit for a year? There's no absolute consensus on *any* of these players, but we can talk about the upside and downside of each guy and...

Does the upcoming NFL draft really feature a historic wide receiver class? Where should the best WRs among the 2024 rookies be drafted in your dynasty league? We will crack open film on the likes of Marvin Harrison, Malik Nabers, Rome Odunze and dozens more WRs to discuss what they do well, and what they do not-so-well. Who are the sleepers in this draft? Who are some potential busts? Also: let's discuss Stefon Diggs's shocking trade to the Houston Texans! Guest: Matt Waldman of the Rookie...

We will get ready for next week's free-agent frenzy with a preview of the players who'll be signing new contracts soon! Wow! Big show! Guest: Jim McCormick of ESPN.   NOTES: Sponsor -...

We've got a Super Bowl preview for you, but first: let's dig into the game tape of one of 2023's most surprising players: Rams RB Kyren Williams. The guy only played 12 games and still won a *ton* of fantasy leagues -- is he more special than we originally believed, or was this *all* about scheme? We'll dive into the tape! And then let's discuss how we think Chiefs/49ers will go, our reaction to the point spreads and totals...and then give you a few prop bets that have a good chance of...

On our show, we firmly believe that the salary cap is crap. It's self-imposed austerity for billionaires so they can hoard more of their sweet sweet money. But that doesn't change the facts: this winter, NFL teams *will* cut expensive players and call them "salary-cap casualties." The truth, of course, is that those teams simply won't want to pay the actual dollars owed to these high-priced players. On today's podcast we'll discuss some of the likeliest skill-position players who have no...

What did we just see? That's the question when you exit a fantasy football season. Do we believe in players who surprised us in 2023? Are we worried about the supposedly great players who let us down? For today's podcast, we'll begin the process of metabolizing the '23 season by listing some NFL players whose stats might be misleading when we start projecting them into 2024. That might mean they ended the year red-hot or ice-cold. It might mean they seem to have produced more or fewer...

The fantasy football championships are done! Our teams have reached the mountaintop (or fallen just short). Let's revel in the glory...or sulk in the tragedy. We'll discuss the heroes and zeroes from Week 17, before moving on to our topic of the day: guys we love! Instead of projecting too far ahead and deciding we're positive what certain players will do in 2024, we'll take time today to simply appreciate some (mostly young) NFL players and the tape they were able to lay down this past NFL...
